hehe I don't disagree! the cam mount is glued but since I wasn't sure of the final install, I thought the screws would a good temp attachment. plus, as I looked around the house, that's what I had handy. I have another similar mount on order with slightly different side flanges. I might be able to glue that or use straps or zip ties to attach ithaving two screws pointing at your skull just seems so wrong!!!
Thanks. I do have a bar mounted light as well. To be honest, neither are ideal and I've trying to find a magicshine 6500 for the longest time, just can't find them anywhere.The human brain has evolved to view images using a decent baseline between the lightsource (ie, the sun) and the eyes. The mathematical calculations your brain does at lightning speed are all geared with this in mind, and having the light soirce so close to the eyes with a minimal baseline co,promises that significantly. You will see better and your brain will interpret the images more speedily and accurately with a bar mounted light.
The other danger is that if you auger in that light may get punched into your brain. I've given CPR to someone that suffered an unexpected torch-brain spatial incompatibality incident, and I can tell you it isn't nice. He did live, but had to learn to walk again, can no longer cycle or drive, sufferers with seizures...its just not a good idea mounting something solid close to your brain like that.
